Apparently Ladder 138 was supposed to be established with Engine 288 before it was established with Engine 289.
Ladder 139 was planned with Engine 289. When Ladder 138 was placed there instead, 139 was never reassigned.
288's and 292's were originally intended to have ladder companies.
Ladders 133, 145, and 160 were all planned for Brooklyn houses.
